  • STOP & GO (20-22 settembre, Parco Chico Mendez, Perugia)

    L’Associazione Progetto Donna e ActionAid, sezione Perugia, Associazione culturale CiaoRino presentano : STOP & GO  (Insieme per il parco)

    Il nostro progetto nasce come collaborazione tra varie associazioni del territorio umbro che, con il proprio lavoro, svolgono un importante ruolo di sensibilizzazione e cambiamento sociale e culturale.

    Progetto Donna, in particolare, lavora da tre anni, nella prevenzione delle discriminazioni e violenza e nel supporto psicologico e giuridico delle vittime di ogni ingiustizia.

    Questo progetto nasce in seguito alla trasformazione dei luoghi in terrae nullius, in cui i cittadini hanno difficoltà a trovare un’appartenenza identitaria, pur rivendicando a gran voce il desiderio di riappropriazione di quegli spazi e luoghi una volta legati a doppio filo alla città e ai cittadini stessi.

    In between his blockbuster movie releases, Po, the Kung Fu Panda, is busy championing endangered species as part of the world’s largest-ever wildlife conservation awareness program. Just in time for World Lion Day and World Elephant Day, he joins Jackie Chan, Yao Ming, Leonardo DiCaprio, Prince William, David Beckham, Lupita Nyong’o and many others as a wildlife ambassador with WildAid.

    In a series of video messages and billboards produced by DreamWorks Animation and WildAid, Po proclaims, “poaching steals from us all,” as he helps defend elephants who are killed for their ivory, rhinos for their horns, lions and tigers for their bones and skins, and pangolins for their scales and meat.

  • Taiwan Announces Domestic Ivory Ban Starting in 2020

    With the close of the 60-day public comment period on its proposed domestic ivory ban, Taiwan’s Forestry Bureau officially announced the ban on its domestic ivory trade starting on 1st January 2020. The Wildlife Conservation Act regulations, specifically Article 33-3, stipulates that as of 1st January 2020 “the sale of and purchase permits” for “ivory or ivory processed products” shall formally end.

    In 1989, the bureau had imposed the Wildlife Conservation Act to strictly curb the import and export of ivory, but in consideration of its large ivory stockpile and the large number of carvers and traders depending on the trade, it rolled back the regulation and re-opened the domestic ivory trade in 1995.

  • AIDF GLOBAL SUMMIT 2018

    UN OCHA’s Global Humanitarian Overview 2018 states that more than 128 million people globally need humanitarian assistance and protection this year – at a cost of $24.2 billion. There are currently 69 million forcibly displaced people worldwide and a current global figure of 22.5 million refugees (half of which are under 18) plus there are 28,300 people a day forced to flee their homes because of conflict, that’s the equivalent of 20 every minute. In addition to human displacement, UN OCHA estimate there are four times as many natural disasters today (when 10+ people are killed or 100+ affected) than there were in the 1960s. 
     
    Products and services which protect and respond to these humanitarian disasters are vital. In its 10th year, the AIDF Global Summit will take place at the Ronald Reagan building in Washington D.C. where it has been held for the last 8 years. Over the past 14 years, AIDF has grown to become the leading global platform serving the humanitarian aid and development sectors, bringing together regional governments, NGOs, Civil Society, Aid agencies, UN and donor organisations with the private sector.
     
    The AIDF Global Summit offers you the opportunity to showcase your products and services directly to over 350 procurement officers and key specifiers while also providing thought leadership and capacity building on your specific areas of expertise in order to help combat and overcome this global challenge.
